The Gallaudet bookstore orders around 20 SignWriting dictionaries a
year. And I know some individual Deaf students and a few teachers use
SignWriting a bit, judging by the email I receive. But officially, I do
not know of any use of SignWriting within their curriculum. There are a
lot of schools in the US. SignWriting has been used in the Albuquerque
Public Schools for years...so that is our official pilot project in the

Val ;-)
